Maiah reviews Sitara 2019

As far as first fashion shows go, Sitara could not have been a better first one to experience.  I know, it seems silly for the editor of the fashion section to not have been to any fashion shows until nearly the end of second year, but what can I say?  I guess I did not get around to it till now, and what a night.

Sitara promises a unique experience unlike many of the other fashion shows here at St Andrews, as it offers “a celebration of Asian cultures.”  The fashion, dance, and music of the show aimed to showcase these cultures “through an urban and contemporary lens,” which I thought was an appropriate description given the unique and eclectic fashion that was displayed at the show, along with the decor and atmosphere that was the perfect fusion of eastern and western cultures.

The venue, Lochaber Farm was a new one, and small enough that the show felt like a private, intimate event.  I was surprised at the lack of huge crowds at the actual show, and to be honest, this was a blessing for someone like myself who tends to have claustrophobia. In between each act of the show, the guests were entertained by lively dance and music numbers, including a fusion of bagpipe and banghra, which was something I had never seen before.

The standout of the show of course, was the fashion which was exactly what I came for. As far as fashion shows go, I was blown away by the clothes and variety of styles that were presented during the show.  Each designer that was introduced varied, and I was never bored by the clothing and acts during the show, anticipating each one after the next.  The models did a fantastic job of executing the fashion expertly, walking to the beat of the music to showcase every detail of the pieces they were wearing, and pausing long enough for photographers to snap a photo.  The standouts were the detailed designs of Christina Wong Textiles, the camoflauge utility by Earl, and my personal favourite – the whimsical, glittery pieces by Sophie Corbishley.

However, while the fashion of the show was breathtaking, I noticed that most of the time, no one actually paid attention to the artwork and handiwork of the designers, rather opting to simply snap a single photo just to say they attended the event.  There was also no big difference between the VIP and normal sections of the show, making the venue seem a bit chaotic.  This is why I have been hesitant to attend many fashion shows at St Andrews in the first place, because to me they seemed too much of a social obligation or social construct rather than an event that people actually enjoyed going to.

Despite this fact, I loved the show, and the hard work the Sitara committee and models put in to make it a unique event.  I had the chance to speak to some of the committee while watching the show, and I can say that they are a passionate and dedicated group of individuals who put a lot of work into something they believe will truly benefit the student body at St Andrews.  The fashion that I saw in the show was something that I had never seen before, and am grateful to have experienced it firsthand.  To me, the designers and people that were showcased were something new compared to the other events in St Andrews, and this is what makes Sitara worth going to at least once in your time here.

  10. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  11. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

  13. Why Keep Left? It lets traffic pass you more easily and you’re less likely to pick up oil and coolant that leaks from cars. The exception: Don’t drive close to parked cars, these doors can open unexpectedly and take you out. Avoid riding during rush hour (7-9am & 4-8pm), unless you are travelling on small roads. Travelling around the moat road is a scary experience for noob riders. You’ll often have to navigate across multiple lanes due to the one-way structure. During rush hour, both Nimman & Huay Kaew road are usually backed up by at least 100 metres. So unless you have to skills to weave in & out of the traffic while avoiding both the oblivious tourists and car mirrors, then save this daunting task for weeks 2 or 3 of your riding career. So where is good for beginners to practise? If you’re in the old town, just drive around for a few hours in the daytime or after 9. It’s quiet, the roads are wide and the pace is slow. Comment below with your first scooter experience in Chiang Mai & where you learnt.

  14. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should publish more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people do not talk about these subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  15. Thanks for another wonderful article. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect way of writing? I ave a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
